I don't entirely understand what point you're trying to make here. If there haven't been any updates at all, surely that should get a game marked down even further?

I'm not accusing the Hype-o-Meter of 'bias'; I'm just saying that this is something that should be taken into account at the next update. No matter how eagerly anticipated a game may be, keeping it at the no. 1 spot looks pretty silly when the official release date is approaching and we've had virtually no news in six months.
